What makes Vendor Marketing unique?

We have an in-depth knowledge of the best real estate agents in your local area, based on years of relationship building and first-hand property marketing experience.

Which areas of Melbourne do you cover?

We specialise in the municipalities of Port Phillip, Stonnington, Boroondara, Bayside, Glen Eira, City of Yarra & City of Melbourne – however we assist vendors right across Melbourne.

Who should use Vendor Marketing?

Anyone who wants to save time and money, achieve the maximum sale price for their property, and be supported throughout the entire sale process by a qualified, independent advisor.

Do you advise the best method of sale, ie. auction, private sale, tender?

Yes, but you get the final say. Most inner-city Melbourne real estate agents prefer auction but each property is different, so we discuss and strategise this with the shortlisted agents.

Whose board is displayed on the property?

The selected real estate agent has their name on the board and on all advertising.

Can you save me money on advertising?

Yes! Our many years’ experience in real estate media means all our vendors benefit from a comprehensive, cost effective property campaign whilst saving between 25-50% of typical agent-driven campaign costs. You’ll get coverage across all traditional real estate advertising mediums plus a complete social marketing campaign.

Is Vendor Marketing a Licensed Estate Agent?

Yes, definitely! Although only one licensed real estate agent is required we work alongside your chosen selling agent whilst managing the process, to ensure your interests are always protected.

What makes Vendor Marketing different from a Real Estate Estate Agent?

We act as strategic vendor advisors. This means we’re independent property and real estate marketing experts who also happen to know who the best real estate agents are in Melbourne.

Do you offer Buyers Advocacy services?

No, Vendor Marketing never represent buyers – ONLY home sellers. Those individuals who offer both vendor and buyer advocacy services do it only to increase revenue. This can create an unethical conflict of interest where one person advises both parties in the same transaction.

Will all Real Estate Agents work with Vendor Marketing?

Yes! We offer a distinct advantage over most vendor advocates, as we only charge the real estate agent an industry standard 20-25% referral or introduction fee. Many other vendors’ advocates charge the agent between 40-50% of their commission, so only desperate real estate agents are inclined to take on the business. And a desperate agent won’t be focused on getting you the best result. Vendor Marketing also ensures you pay less commission overall.

    We would highly recommend Craig Knudsen of Vendor Marketing

    “The appointment of Craig Knudsen of Vendor Marketing was the wisest decision we made when it came to selling of our home of 45 years. From our initial meeting with Craig it was clear he was a man of honesty and integrity and had great knowledge and understanding of the real estate industry. From the beginning of the campaign until the auction Craig guided us with total professionalism. One comment we recall vividly was when he said, “Let me remove the stress from you” and he certainly did that. Everything that Craig achieved for us was managed so professionally and through a Covid lockdown period. As a result photographers were unable to enter homes, initially no open for inspections were allowed and the campaign ended with an online auction, the result of which was extremely satisfying. At no stage did Craig lose focus and he was not distracted by these obstacles, just continued doing what Craig does best, selling properties for his clients. Without hesitation we would highly recommend Craig Knudsen of Vendor Marketing.”

    Great Results Through Vendor Marketing

    “Craig and Vendor Marketing were recommended to us to assist with the sale of my parents’ home in 2014 and we had no hesitaion in engaging Craig’s services again when it came to selling our property. With extensive knowledge of the real estate industry, Craig was able to assist us in selecting the agent best suited to marketing and selling our home. From our initial interviews with agents through to auction day, Craig kept us informed and guided us through the whole process in a professional and friendly manner. Working together with Craig and the agent we were able to achieve a wonderful result at auction with a minimum of stress. I would highly recommend Craig to anyone considering selling their property”

    The best decision we made when selling

    “The best decision we made when it came to sell our home was to employ Craig Knudsen of vendormarketing. He vetted 4 Real Estate Agents and with his advice we chose the best agent in our area to deal with our home. He then did all the communications with the agent until they successfully negotiated a pleasing sale during lockdown. His attention to detail was exemplary and was always immediately available to answer questions- very professional. We cannot thank him enough for his help and friendship during this time. We recommend without hesitation Craig Knudsen as a reliable and helpful savier when it comes to real estate.”

    Vendor Marketing/Craig Knudsen

    “A big shout out for Craig Knudsen! Apart from being a really nice man, he knows his stuff! We had soooo much happening in our lives and needed help in selling our home. How nice it was to put your total trust in someone, who could in fact “take the reins” Craig interviewed several agents and with our approval we collectively chose the agent we thought best to sell our property. Through “lockdowns” Craig worked hard to make sure that everything possible was achieved to provide a prosperous outcome on Auction Day. Other than during the Auction, we were never stressed or worried. We knew we had 4 bidders coming to Auction and we sold our home for $140,000 over our reserve. We have no problem recommending Craig to anyone who is wanting to sell their home, his guidance and support has been commendable. Thanks Craig.”
